A Memorial Day service was held at St. John’s Cemetery in Lowellville Monday morning, and “Taps” was played to honor those buried there.

The service honored veterans for their time served and especially for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. The American Legion members then traveled to other cemeteries for a similar ceremony.

Veterans met at the American Legion Post 560 in Campbell to decorate local cemeteries with American flags.  A group of students from Campbell City Schools assisted the veterans.

A Memorial Day service at the veteran’s monument at Campbell Memorial High School followed.

“We had elementary school, middle school and high school students putting out the flags. That’s so great to see. They come up to you and say ‘thank you for serving our country and protecting us.’ That’s what it’s all about,” said American Legion member Dominic Medina.

Mahoning County Common Pleas Court Judge John Durkin was the keynote speaker for Campbell’s program.
